Thousands of young people paraded down the main pedestrian street of Curitiba in southern Brazil, setting up a health fair that taught residents about natural remedies and the benefits of healthy living, on November 17, 2018. Organizers estimate that about 7,000 Seventh-day Adventist young people from the southern states of Paraná, Santa Catarina, and Rio Grande do Sul took part in the activity, on the third day of a regional camporee being held nearby.
“The focus of [the camporee] activities is getting involved to share the good news of the gospel wherever you are,” organizers said. As a way of reaching out to a sizable number of people in that city of 1.9 million residents, a massive health fair was put together along the city’s main street. There, young people shared the benefits of natural remedies — pure air, sunlight, water, rest, temperance, faith, physical exercise, and healthy eating.
